Illinois Compiled Statutes
Information maintained by the Legislative
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process.
Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes,
statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect.
If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has
not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already
been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes
made to the current law.

Computation of rates.
Except as provided below, each county
clerk shall estimate and determine the rate per cent upon the equalized
assessed valuation for the levy year of the property in the county's taxing
districts and special service areas, as established under Article VII of the
Illinois Constitution, so that the rate will produce, within the proper
divisions of that county, not less than the net amount that will be required by
the county board or certified to the county clerk according to law. Prior to
extension, the county clerk shall determine the maximum amount of tax
authorized to be levied by any statute. If the amount of any tax certified to
the county clerk for extension exceeds the maximum, the clerk shall extend only
the maximum allowable levy.
The county clerk shall exclude from the total equalized assessed valuation,
whenever estimating and determining it under this Section and Sections 18-50
through 18-105, the equalized assessed valuation in the percentage which has
been agreed to by each taxing district, of any property or portion thereof
within an Enterprise Zone upon which an abatement of taxes was made under
Section 18-170. However, if a municipality has adopted tax increment financing
under Division 74.4 of Article 11 of the Illinois Municipal Code, the county
clerk shall estimate and determine rates in accordance with Sections 11-74.4-7
through 11-74.4-9 of that Act. Beginning on January 1, 1998 and thereafter,
the equalized assessed value of all property for
the computation of the amount to be extended within a county with 3,000,000 or
more inhabitants shall be the sum of (i) the equalized assessed value of
such property for the
year immediately preceding the levy year as established by the assessment and
equalization process for the year immediately prior to the levy year, (ii)
the equalized assessed value of any property that qualifies as new property, as
defined in Section 18-185, or annexed property, as defined in Section 18-225,
for the current levy year, and (iii) any recovered tax increment value, as
defined in Section 18-185, for the current levy year, less the equalized
assessed value of any property that qualifies as disconnected property, as
defined in Section 18-225, for the current levy year.
